really liked it

Ah Mr Bones how I miss you. I read this short book on holidays last year and still think about Mr Bones now and then. This innocent and simple creature who is happy to go wherever his beloved master Willy is and is content with their situation, even if sleeping on the cold streets with empty bellies, as long as they are together. Unfortunately Willy is not well and possibly losing his marbles when he gives Mr Bones advice in his last days that makes him terrified of most people and the big city in which they live. When Willy dies he finds himself scared, hungry and alone. The book takes you on a journey as he searches for the place called Timbuktu to be reunited with his beloved Willy who said that's where he was going just before he died. On the journey Mr Bones encounters kindness, sometimes meanness and even love. I won't spoil it for you and tell you if he ever gets to Timbuktu, you will have to read it and find out which I highly recommend.
